Along with “Inshallah” (If God, or in this case Allah wants), “welcome” will be the words that mostly you’ll hear during your journey through Morocco.
Morocco is one of those countries that shake you, hit you hard in the soul, it will not leave you indifferent. Sometimes it is pure Africa, sometimes it seems Asia (for its colors, its scents, its street life), at times resembling to the collective imagination that we have of “Arabia” and its thousand and one nights… It is a country full of stimuli, of colors and of “micro worlds”: there are white medinas in front of the sea that look like Greece, there are caves with nomadic families that live in the mountains, there are crazy cities and very touristic places, there are small towns, lost and silent, there are medieval medinas, there is snow, there is a lot of sun (the saying talks about Morocco being a cold country with a very strong sun), there’s mint tea all the time, haggling in any market, hospitality, also insistence…
Morocco is a country that can fascinate you and exhaust you at the same time, and a place that you would love to return without hesitation. It has several climates. On the coast (the north and west of the country) the weather is moderate and subtropical, with cool winds of the Mediterranean and the Atlantic. In winter (December to March) the north of the country is rainy and humid. In the interior the temperatures are more extreme: the winters are very cold (in the Atlas, the mountain chain in the center, the temperature can reach below zero and there is snow) and the summers are very hot (above 100°F). So if you ask us when is the best time to go, I would say that in the spring (late march, April), when it is no longer so cold, and yet it’s not so hot.
Generally, you can find Internet access almost all places, all cities have internet cafes, tourist restaurants, hostels and hotels. With us, you will have connection to the Net even in the middle of the desert, directly from our tour guide and completely free!
Moroccan people speak many languages and very good: the officers are Arabic and speak tamazight (Berber language) and french. In the north, in addition, it is common to also speak Spanish (since they were a Spanish colony) and in the center and south they commonly speak french or English. If you know any of these languages you are going to be fine. By the way, you should learn some local language as for example “la, shokran” (no thank you) or “salam alaikum” (the traditional greeting).
